    I have been working at Genentech full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are still good, not near where they used to be though. Good opportunities to work in a global organization and travel, if that excites you.

    Cons

    Roche is rapidly cutting salaries, staff, and benefits. Management is not transparent, decision making is poor, and there is no clarity around strategy at the individual or company level.

    Advice to Management

    Let Art run the company
